String Quartet in F major, Op. 96 "American"
Their account of the American Quartet belongs alongside the greatest performances on disc. In this repertoire, they are simply matchless today. The Pavel Haas Quartet play with plenty of feeling and they also relish the rhythmic cut and thrust of the Molto vivace third movement, capturing to perfection the more relaxed Trio's sunny spirit. The final opens to a gentle smile then keys up for some dancing exuberance The freshness of the Pavel Haas Quartet's sound and approach is in the main a perfect match for this music: its wide-ranging palette, from intimate whispers to grander, symphonic gestures, is aptly deployed.
Its tone is in general sweetly blended, homogenous and with obvious close rapport. There's an arresting energy and atmosphere to the performances and they certainly contain new perspectives Album detail.
